Exercise in older age may protect memory and thinking skills

A new study published in the journal Neurology provides further evidence that exercise in older age may slow the rate of cognitive decline.

Dr. Clinton B. Wright, of the University of Miami in Florida, and colleagues found that adults over the age of 50 who engaged in light or no exercise experienced a significantly faster decline in memory and thinking skills, compared with those who engaged in moderate to intense exercise.

This is not the first study to associate exercise in later life with better cognitive skills. Recent research reported by Medical News Today, for example, suggests that any amount of exercise may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease by 50%.
